Crewe Town Council and their tenants


Back in April I posted this video of the terrible state of the ally rear of Walker St which is caused by the rubbish and bushes from the Walker St allotments. People in the st cant get down their own alley as half of it is blocked and dangerous brambles which can rip your eye out there is also permanent water in the alley which may come from the allotment and could contain anything.

Both CTC and Allotments have refused to tidy it. To solve the problem I did several FOI act requests which CTC illegally refused but the ICO has now been involved and the request has been fulfilled.

The CTC response below from that we can see several breaches of the lease

o Maintain in good and substantial repair all the boundary structures of the Premises

· The tenant

o shall comply with all requirements of Environmental Law

o is not to do or permit to (sic) anything that would or may cause any Hazardous Materials or Waste to escape, leak or be spilled or deposited on the Premises or discharged from the Premises or migrate to or from the Premises be spilled or deposited on the Premises or discharged from the Premises or migrate to or from the Premises

Given the breach of tenancy what are CTC going to do about this ie clear the bushes etc and charge the allotments or fine them of force them to make the area free of rubbish and sort the water out?

The Ford Lane allotment has CCTV by law they must register with the ICO and they can be prosecuted and receive a massive fine if they don’t. The ICO has confirmed they have no record of it being registered and will be looking into taking action. The allotments were asked for the registration number but refused to reply. So that again is in breach of the lease

· The tenant shall not use site security personnel, guard dogs or CCTV cameras unless written permission has been granted by the landlord whose consent is not to be unreasonable withheld or delayed and which is in accordance with the Tenant’s Security Policy and insurance cover.

Crewe Town Council response: Under the terms of the lease:

· The Tenant is to

o Insure against public and employer’s liability

o Keep the Premises neat tidy and cultivated in a manner appropriate to its use as an allotment made available to the public

o Maintain in good and substantial repair all the boundary structures of the Premises

· The tenant shall not use site security personnel, guard dogs or CCTV cameras unless written permission has been granted by the landlord whose consent is not to be unreasonable withheld or delayed and which is in accordance with the Tenant’s Security Policy and insurance cover.

· The tenant

o shall comply with all requirements of Environmental Law

o is not to do or permit to (sic) anything that would or may cause any Hazardous Materials or Waste to escape, leak or be spilled or deposited on the Premises or discharged from the Premises or migrate to or from the Premises
